Opera by Gioachino Rossini Performed by the Rossini Opera Festival

The Rossini Opera Festival represents the absolute crème de la crème in the realm of Rossini performance. With stage direction by the great JeanPierre Ponnelle, and world-class stars, soprano Olga Peretyatko and tenor Maxim Mironov, L’Occasione fa il Ladro (Opportunity Makes a Thief) is a delightfully funny, beautifully sung tale of identity theft and mixed-up lovers. Through a cleverly entangled web of amusing obstacles, ill-fated deceptions and lucky twists of fate, those who are meant for each other eventually realise their hopes and dreams. The Filarmonica Gioachino Rossini will be conducted by Christopher Franklin who is sought-after as a guest conductor by many of the world’s finest orchestras.
